It was a hot day at Allatoona Park (Cobb County Corps Properties) that turned an always close meet into a war of attrition. With temps in the mid-80s, limited shade, and some tall grass in areas, it wouldn’t appear to be a chance for many PRs, but we saw some very tough competition and some relatively fast times. In the end, Marietta proved to be the dominate team on both the boys and girls sides.
The Cobb County Championships will again bring together some of the top teams in the state fighting for mid-season Cobb County bragging rights. There will be a number of top ranked teams and individuals across quite a few classifications. All of the racing will take place at Allatoona Park on the Cobb County Corps Property off of Old Stilesboro Road. If you haven’t seen this venue, it is one of the best in the state. The course provides many opportunities for spectators with long straights and just enough turns and elevation change to keep runners honest. Racing begins at 3:45 p.m. to allow for everyone to take the SAT in the morning and to avoid conflict with bow hunters (the course is hunting grounds until 10 a.m.).
